Given the difference in population figures and the lack of the deterrent effect of the illegality of abortion, plus what would seem to be the difficulty of accurately quantifying the prevelance of a procedure typically and necessarily performed without being reported, it's hard to think the number wouldn't be significantly higher today than in the 50s. This site's database of reported abortions puts the numbers much lower - from a low of 7 in 1950 to a high of 679 in (ironically enough) 1951. The total number of reported abortions in the 1950s, per those statistics, was 3,870. Getting from those numbers to the 10,000,000 abortions the "1M/year in the 1950s" requires would mean there were approximately 2,600 unreported abortions for each reported abortion.

    Bottom line, I'd need to see the scholarship behind that claim before I could take it seriously
    I should have stated that I don't think that number can ever be substantiated. And I don't think its important. My post was in response to palmetto saying there were no abortions "in the good old days."

    And no teen sex either.

    PS: Does anyone really believe there were 7 abortions in 1950?

    No we need to follow this generation they have the answer to everything
    Life should be carefree, if you need money dont work you are entitled to someone elses money. But when that somebody elses money runs out you are SCREWED!

    Is this Senator Paul throwing his hat in the ring for the 2016 Republican Presidential Nomination?
    a politician played to the audience he was speaking to?

    My. This must be a first.

    I'm curious as to whether you actually shake a cane when you make these posts that have nothing to do with the thread topic.

    My experience comes into play here too. I was around during the period of change and old enough to see the transition.
    Sorry you're wrong. Teen pregnancy rates have been in a steady decline since the late 50's. They started increasing in the 40's and peaked in the late 50's. You are mistaking teen pregnancy with single mother pregnancy.

    Sorry Rand one must have a spirit to have it cleansed. This country has no spirit and hasn't had one for decades. So stop spitting into the wind.
